Ivy Tech Kokomo sets Tuesday@theTech with Information Technology focus

Prospective students can learn about educational options on Aug. 30

KOKOMO, Ind. – Information Technology fields will be in focus at the next Tuesday@theTech open house at Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo Aug. 30 and IT Professor Robyn Schmidt says that means an opportunity to look at the quality of jobs available in the IT industry, not just the money to be earned.

Drawing from her experiences as an instructor, adviser and mentor, Schmidt said, “For many people today, work-life balance is as important a consideration as pay. Ivy Tech’s IT degrees provide many opportunities to find a path in a career the student would like both personally and professionally.” She noted the field is one that is ever-changing, regularly offering new challenges to keep inquisitive people engaged and motivated.

The event is set for 6 to 8 p.m. and will begin in Hingst Hall in Ivy Tech Kokomo’s Health Professions Center on the east side of the campus at 1815 E. Morgan St. Information will be available on how to get ready to begin the classes offered during the next eight-week session that begins Oct. 24.

Schmidt, who serves as department chair for the School of Information Technology for Ivy Tech Kokomo, and Julie Byrd, chair of the Software Development program, will be on hand to discuss the three  programs offered on the Kokomo Campus – Cyber Security, Software Development, and IT Support, as well as online offerings in Cloud Computing, Informatics, Computer Science, and Data Analytics. The evening will include a look at Ivy Tech Kokomo’s full CISCO data center where students learn and practice skills on equipment just like they’ll find in the workplace.
